Still a few sets left in the mix this morning

Posted by: on April 19th, 2016

Hello Friends,

Swell’s definitely down from yesterday’s peak intensity, but it’s still producing the occasional shoulder plus set at the point and along the beach. Swell’s coming mainly from the SSE at about 2.5 metres with an average period just a touch under the 10 second mark. Like yesterday, the point was well populated at 0700 when I grabbed the pics. Tide was high at 0630 and is now dropping to the low at 1245.
Swell’s predicted to decrease across the morning and wind should stay lightly from the south.
Outlook on the models this morning is for the energy levels to stick around at slightly below this morning’s offerings through to the weekend. Then it seems as though we might get another blast of southerly wind along with an uptick in swell.
Your correspondent is going to relocate to the lovely central coast for the next couple of days. The computer’s going with me, so if I can get a connection, I’ll try to file a picture or two…
Have a great Tuesday one and all!

Weather Situation
A high pressure system over the Tasman Sea is extending a ridge across southern New South Wales, while a trough lies off the central and northern coasts. This pattern is leading to considerable variability in winds over most waters. The trough is expected to gradually weaken during Tuesday and Wednesday as the ridge shifts northwards, generating north to northeasterly winds from the middle of the week. The next southerly change is expected in the south late Thursday, extending through remaining areas on Friday.
Forecast for Tuesday until midnight
Winds
South to southeasterly about 10 knots.
Seas
Below 1 metre.
1st Swell
Southeasterly 1 to 1.5 metres, decreasing to around 1 metre by early evening.

Easterly 1 to 1.5 metres.
Weather
Cloudy. 70% chance of showers offshore, 40% chance elsewhere. Showers becoming less likely during the afternoon and evening.
Caution
Deceptively powerful surf conditions in the morning are expected to be hazardous for coastal activities such as crossing bars by boat and rock fishing.

0645 at Dee Why
Hello Friends,

There’s a turn up for the books. It was supposed to be small by this morning. Certainly it had dropped a fair amount through the day yesterday and was looking like going near flat overnight too. But Huey’s stepped in.

At 0630 this morning, the MHL buoy was showing 2.4 metres of SSE swell with an average period of about 9 seconds. Skies were grey and drizzly, and the wind was a light but steady southerly of around 10 knots. The ocean surface was a little choppy but the Bureau says the wind should let up as we get toward lunchtime. The swell is due to fade across the day and from tomorrow on is not looking all that interesting for Sydney surfers it has to be said.

Tide is high at 0800 and low about 1340.

Have yourself a great Saturday!

Time for a plug…

It’s a fundraiser where the emphasis is on fun and you’re in the door with a voucher for a couple drinks and finger food for a laughable $20. You can book online right now by clicking here. Oh, and I’ll be putting together a little video clip of PC at Dee Why point in 1977. Might work in a few shots of Terry Fitz and MP as well. It comes from 16mm film I shot and is something very few people have seen… I’m also keen to source images and vid sequences from DY and the northern beaches if you know of any (all media will be credited and used only for the night).

Sneaking one Charge

 

Hello Friends,

Swell has shifted away from yesterday’s more easterly mix to something closer to south. There are a few sets about thanks to the 2.5 metres of SSE swell at 9 seconds apart, but it is much less consistent than yesterday. The day started out drizzly and grey, but it was glassy and when the waves came, they were extra clean (unlike the water). Lots of folks in the water at south Narrabeen when I checked. They were scattered from south of Mactier street to the north end of Gardens and sets were into the shoulder plus to maybe head plus range. Around at Dee Why there were a fair few for a rainy Monday morning and waves were in the chest plus range with the odd bomb.

Wind should stay favourable this morning before turning southerly around midday and then it will swing toward the east late.

So get out now and deal with the high tide I’d say.

The swell should stick around for another day at least, so surf prospects will really depend upon what the wind does. Tomorrow’s call is for east to NE wind, so there might be something fun in the north corners.

Have yourself a great day!

ps: went shooting at the weekend, so galleries up soon…

Hello Friends,

Yesterday the Bureau was predicting a swell arrival of around midday, but from the look of the beach at Dee Why, the forerunner sets are already showing up. According to the MHL buoy data, it’s straight south at about 2.5 metres with an average period a touch under 9 seconds.

The hardy crew in the water at Dee Why beach were hanging about waiting for sets with wave faces into the head high range on take off. Wind was out of the west and air temps at 0800 were around the 10 degree mark. So, wind chill ought to be rather, well, chilly.

This morning’s swell forecasts are calling for tomorrow to be peak day and then for the energy levels to fade back over Thursday and into Friday.

Yours truly is going to head off on a quick midweek surfari up the coast, so, connections permitting, expect to hear something on that front later…

Go well with your Tuesday!

Tides: H @1740, L @1320
